SonarQube Valuable Features

Steven Gomez
Lead Engineer at bioMerieux, Inc.
I like the dashboard it shows by default, where you can see things at a glance. At the same time, you can also drill way down and see a lot of stuff about your code, like complexity metrics, and things like that. It gives you a nice dashboard where you can just look at a birds-eye view. View full review »

The main factor that makes the product valuable for us is that it is free because budget is always an issue. We do not have to pay for it, but there are many cons to using a free product at times. It is a very good tool even if it is free. The dashboard and the media that it provides are all quite helpful. We are always using SonarQube. But currently, we were trying to evaluate some more tools because Sonar in the free version has around 10 to 15 languages. If we go to the commercial version, they support 27 languages and there are a lot of limitations in the resources for traditional support which is not available for the free license users of Sonar. Integration is there with most of the tools, but we do not have full integration with the free version. That is why we were planning to go ahead and plan to work with some other commercial tools. But as a whole, Sonar will do what we need it to. View full review »

The product has a friendly UI that is easy to use and understand. Especially, the admin's control panel is very good and It's not really difficult to get through the settings. With minimal coding experience, we can build many rules that apply for each programming language, for example, CSS, and Java. You can easily set up rules. We are luckily able to do this with the community version. With other community versions, you are not always allowed to customize the profile for example. With the SonarQube Community Edition, it's authorized. View full review »

In terms of most valuable feature, when you compute SonarQube you need to install an extension. This extension depends on the version control. You need to install different extensions or work with a specific language to use as the extensions, all of which I work in with different projects. View full review »

There are two major use cases. One is to integrate it into the developers' workbench so that they can bench check their code against what will be done in the server-based audit version. View full review »

Devops Engineer at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
The most valuable feature is the security hotspot feature that identifies where your code is prone to have security issues. It also gives you a very good highlight of what's changed, and what has to be changed in the future. Apart from that, there are many other good features as it's a code analytics platform. It also has a dashboard reporting feature, which is very good. I also like the ease of its integration with Jenkins. Another valuable feature is the time snapshot that it provides for the code. It provides the code quality, the lagging, and the training features like what already has gone wrong and what is likely to go wrong. It's a very good feature for a project to have a dashboard where the users can find everything about their project at a single glance. View full review »

The most valuable feature is that it lays everything out and breaks it down, making it very easy to find and identify issues. SonarQube is really good for finding coding standards when people deviate from what we have set corporately. View full review »

When it comes to security, this solution is pretty great. The static code analysis of the solution is the most important aspect for us. When it comes to security breaches within the code, we can leverage some rules to allow us to identify the repetition in our code and the possible targets that we may have. It makes it very easy to review our code for security purposes. The solution is quite stable. You can scale the solution if you need to. View full review »

It's a great product. If you are in a hurry and just want to focus on the functional requirements of any kind of project, SonarQube is highly helpful. It enables the developers to code securely. SonarQube has a Community edition, which is open source and free. There are also three proprietary or paid versions: Enterprise edition, Data Center edition, and Developer edition. View full review »

Code coverage of tests is their most valuable feature. Code coverage is of no value if it's high, but if it's a low number then that's of great value to me. View full review »
Donovan Greeff
Head of Software Delivery at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
By far the quality gate controls. Without this, there would be no way to really utilize the power of this tool. We are able to automatically ensure that no code is delivered to production when it contains severe bugs or vulnerabilities. The tight integration to source control also helps us to keep the engineers in the loop with any follow-up actions for issues reported. Finally, the historical trend analysis gives us great insight into how we are improving based on our decisions, which are now driven by clear data. View full review »

The product itself has a friendly UI. It's easy to use and we understand how to manage the admin control panel, it's really quick. It's really easy to perform admin jobs using the control panel. The tools are really easy to use. With the coding, we can build a bunch of rules that apply for each programming language, for example, CSS, Java, and more. Even with the community version, we can still set up rules. We accommodate them and they give us the best quality. It's been a great experience so far. View full review »

RakeshPal
Senior Manager at Digichorus Technologies
SonarQube is good in terms of code review and to report on basic vulnerabilities in your applications. The code writing standard of SonarQube is good. It may be better in other editions but as we don't use those we're not able to find out with SonarQube. We are using the community, developer version for 14 days. If this version is successful we will go to the full version. We're using it on-premises. View full review »
